You have never seen anything like this. Located on the most desirable street in the village of New Paltz, this incredible 100+ acre historical farm is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own one of the finest properties in the region. With a beautifully renovated almost 4000 sq.ft. farm house, majestic views of the world-famous Shawangunk Mountains, a fully restored barn that will blow you away (130 feet long, 3-stories - one of the biggest in the area), and additional out-buildings with endless possibilities... All right within the Village of New Paltz. Take a stroll on the Rail Trail right around the corner and walk a few minutes to Main Street's coffee shops and restaurants. Or bike on the new Empire State Trail which also lands right here on Huguenot Street.
The farm house retains many of the original features, including wide board flooring and beautiful historical details. The open floor plan, 10 foot ceilings, all new windows, create a bright and spacious home with unlimited potential.
The farm's vast fields make up some of the most rich and fertile farmland anywhere and have been farmed for almost 400 years since Huguenot settlement and probably were farmed by Native Americans long before European settlement. With so much history and beauty, more than a 1000 feet of Walkill river frontage, fully fenced fields, magnificent meadows with black raspberry bushes, majestic trees including walnut, oak, hickory, black cherry, and mulberry trees, and even your very own 20 acre nature preserve with an especially rare ecosystem where a complex of ponds and mature woods are home to 100+ species of birds... no picture or description could do any justice to this property, where dreams meet reality.
Owned by the Jewett family for over a hundred years, the farm was protected from development thanks to a combination of circumstances, including a wonderful conservation easement which protects the land so that the last remaining farm within the Village of New Paltz will remain forever the "Jewel of New Paltz".
Less than 90 minutes from midtown Manhattan, this unique historic property makes for a rare investment. Conservation and Ag District zoning exempt you from property taxes as long as you keep the property farmed. It would make a very special Bed and Breakfast, family estate, horse farm, or anything you can imagine. This property is NOT for developers.
